A Letter To My Siblings

Dear Siblings,

I love you. I can’t remember the last time I said those exact words out loud because our love for one another is shown through jokes and name-calling, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Growing up, we fought constantly. I believe it had to do with the age gaps between us.  Anytime mom and dad told you older two, to watch us younger two, chasing one another around the house with baseball bats and wrestling always occurred.  

But when we all got along, we got along great. We would always play Trading Spaces, which I remember consisted of messing up our rooms and having the others clean them. (Why were we so weird?) The hours we spent in the playroom and how we were all mad whenever mom and dad turned it into a family room, even though we didn’t play with toys at that point anymore. And all of the times in the pool we would hit the volleyball back and forth, trying to break our record each time. Those are some of my fondest memories from childhood with you all.

Now that we’re all grown up, I love that our bond is stronger than ever. I will always appreciate the group chat we have where we talk about everything and anything, no matter how inappropriate the conversations may get.  I love the inside jokes we have and how we laugh any time they are brought up.  I love the secrets we tell each other, but keep from mom and dad.  I love that our family is extremely open and that we laugh at everything. You three are the only other people who understand just how crazy our family truly is.


Thank you, for always being there for me whenever I need someone to laugh with or for someone to listen. I know I don’t say it enough, but I appreciate you three immensely.

I promise to always be there for you. If you ever need anything, you know I will do my best to help in any way I can. You three started out as my built-in-best friends, but over the years have most definitely turned into my actual best friends. We still argue here and there, but I know at the end of the day it’s nothing but love. 

I hope our bond continues to grow stronger as the years go by. There isn’t anyone else I would want to be a part of our crazy family.


Your favorite sibling
